1. Won 2 prominent cases in IR:
(a) Won a constructive dismissal case in Industrial Court. The company restructured its organization specifically its job grading based on a blueprint by UK. Due to the restructuring the employee's fixed car allowance is withdrawn and his job grade had become a lower level. His position and other terms and conditions remains the same. The employee walked out from the Company claiming constructive dismissal. We manage to win the case.

(b) Won a case in High Court. It is an appeal from labour office to high court. Two employees was terminated for insubordination. Company redesignated their position from van salesman to sales representative. In doing so the company withdrawn car allowance of RM400. Both the employees refuse to assume the new position despite repeatedly asked to do so. Company issued show cause letter and upon receiving their reply the company terminated their services for insubordination without notice. Both the employees filed a complaint against the company for termination benefits and indemnity in lieu of notice. The labour officer's decision was in favour of the employees. We appealed against the decision and won the matter with costs.
